This is a reproduction of a medieval German fauldstool commissioned by a harpist. The seat is actually a little lower than a normal seat so the he could lean the harp back against him to play.

Very nice. I’m sure the harpist will be very pleased – I know I would!

Very nice.

Carrying a harp is difficult. With a stool even more so. Having a fold up chair like this should make the task easier….

Roy Underhill made a chair similar to that many years ago. I always wanted to try one…
